ACTIVIST JUSTICE HORN DEMANDS RESIGNATION OF SOUTH KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI STATE REP. MARK SHARP!!!
Campaign season and infighting among Kansas City urban Democratic Party leaders escalates this Summer.
Hidden from behind a paywall . . .
"A Missouri state representative who is up for re-election posted Facebook comments in 2011 referring to women as “meat” and complaining about “homo shyt,” and was reprimanded as a Texas high school teacher in 2017 for showing an inappropriate online conversation to students."
And now a rising star, former Black Lives Matter leader and local activist weighs in . . .
JUSTICE HORN PUBLICLY DEMANDS THE RESIGNATION OF MO STATE REP. MARK SHARP IN A SOCIAL MEDIA SCREED!!!
Here's the word that should make this 2020 campaign season more "problematic" for local Democratic Party loyalists until it's resolved . . .
Justice Horn wrote . . .
"TW Sexual Harassment: Today, the public was made aware of the misconduct of Missouri State Representative District 36, Mark A. Sharp. After an investigation was conducted by the Texas Education Agency, Representative Mark Sharp was terminated from his teaching position by the Caddo Mills Independent School District for searching for firearms using school resources when the district asked him not to and for sharing inappropriate videos with students in 2017 (link below). Not only that, Representative Sharp exhibits homophobic, antisemitic, and sexist ideals in remarks/posts still on his social media (link below). Words cannot describe how embarrassed and insulted I am as a Kansas Citian that this individual represents the great people of District 36.
"Out of respect for the office, Missouri State Representative Mark Sharp must resign and suspend his re-election campaign effective immediately. If he fails to do so, I call on the Missouri Democratic Party, Missouri House Democrats, Missouri Senate Democrats, and the Missouri Legislative Black Caucus, Inc. to step in because this inappropriate behavior is simply not acceptable for a state representative to exhibit. I have great respect for leaders of color, but make no mistake, homophobia, sexism, antisemitism, and predatory behavior have no place in the Missouri Democratic Party.

For old school denizens of the local political scene, our MOST KICK-ASS READERS remind us that this is the son of former Southland KCMO Council Dude John Sharp. And it looks as if the efforts to extend the political dynasty might be faltering . . .
And now . . . The ultimate decision falls upon Jackson County Prosecutor and Missouri Democratic Party Chair Jean Peters Baker to make a recommendation one way or another . . .
